World
History with Mr. Golden
__________________________________________________________
The Far East – Genghis Khan
Objective:
________________________________________________________
FLWBAT describe the effects of
Mongol rule in China - (that’s right,
we’re looking in on the other side of
the world for a change!)
Agenda:
________________________________________________________
- Review
- Cornell notes
- Guided reading
- DBQ (What’s that?!?! I’m scared…)
- Closing
- We’re done!
Cornell Notes:
Notes/definitions go
on the right side
Keywords go on the
left side
________________________________________________________
The Silk Road
________________________________________________________
Don’t
forget the
PLAGUE!
o A major trade route that
connected China with
Europe
o New goods, a lot of money,
The Mongols:
________________________________________________________
Just like Europe, Asia is full of warring kingdoms:
The Mongols in
Eastern Asia are
just one of those
kingdoms which
is made up of
dozens of
smaller tribes
The Mongols:
________________________________________________________
Genghis Khan:
Two words:
STONE COLD.
o Born as “Temujin”, he
renamed himself
Genghis Khan (“Ruler
of All”) after he united
the Mongol tribes
o Moved to conquer all
neighboring lands
o It’s estimated that he
killed roughly 40
million people
during
Resisting cities
Cooperating
were
paid
hisdestroyed
21 years ofcities
conquest
Comparing Empires:
Let’s compare Genghis Khan’s
Empire with some of the other
one’s that we’ve studied in
class…
________________________________________________________
Alexander the
Great: About 2
million square
miles
The Roman
Empire: About
2.2 million
square miles
Comparing Empires:
________________________________________________________
Genghis Khan’s Mongol Empire:
About 8 million square miles
That’s equal to both of the other empires… x2!
Let’s do some math:
________________________________________________________
Genghis Khan:
o8 million square miles of empire
o40 million dead o 5 dead for each square mile
o20 years of war o conquered
2,000,000 dead each year
(or 5480 dead each day!)
o 400,000 square miles
gained each year (or 1100
per day!)
To put that in perspective:
He murdered all of California
and took over an area 2.5 times
the size of the United States
What is best in life?
________________________________________________________
Conan knows:
But who told HIM?
What is best in life?
________________________________________________________
“The greatest happiness is to
vanquish your enemy, to see
him driven before you, to see
his cities reduced to ashes, to
see those who love him
shrouded in tears, and to
gather into your bosom his
wives and daughters.”
STONE COLD.
Genghis Khan:
________________________________________________________
Yes, we’re talking
about so much
theft, rape, and
murder that modern
DNA studies
suggest that up to
17 million people
(living right now)
are descended from
Genghis Khan.
Yuan Dynasty:
________________________________________________________
Kublai Khan – (grandson of Genghis) – is the
first non-Chinese ruler to control China
Take a look at the reading and answer
the following questions in your notes:
1. What did Mongol leaders
do in order to prevent a
Chinese rebellion?
2. How did Mongol leaders
increase trade in the
region?
3. What event triggered the
downfall of the Yuan
Dynasty?
Genghis Khan DBQ:
________________________________________________________
DBQ stands for Document-Based Question
Genghis Khan says:
DBQs sound fancy and complicated
– they’re not. All you need to do for
this one is read the documents and
answer the questions that
accompany them. Raise your hand if
you have any questions!
This is part of your classwork, and
classwork earns PRIDE cards, soooo…
USE YOUR TIME WISELY!
A Quiz?!?!
OPEN-NOTE QUIZ!
________________________________________________________
Use all of your notes and handouts on
the Middle Ages in Europe to answer the
questions on your quiz.
As long as you’ve been here
and have been doing your work,

faces like this…
USE YOUR TIME WISELY!
We’re done!
